Things Heard & Seen

Oscar-nominee Amanda Seyfried leads this mystery horror as an artist who begins to suspect her wonderful marriage hides something sinister. Co-stars James Norton (Little Women), Natalia Dyer (Stranger Things) and Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul).

Catherine Clare (Seyfried) reluctantly trades life in 1980s Manhattan for a remote home in the tiny hamlet of Chosen, New York, after her husband George (Norton) lands a job teaching art history at a small Hudson Valley college. Even as she does her best to transform the old dairy farm into a place where young daughter Franny will be happy, Catherine increasingly finds herself isolated and alone. She soon comes to sense a sinister darkness lurking both in the walls of the ramshackle property—and in her marriage to George.

An adaptation of Elizabeth Brundage's novel All Things Cease to Appear, the film comes from the Academy Award-nominated writers of 2003's American Splendor.

All up, there’s half of a very good sinister domestic horror here, and half of a pretty schlocky supernatural thriller. But when neither really sticks the landing, it leaves you wondering whether any of it was really worthwhile at all.

Seyfried and Norton’s layered performances don’t make up for a messy attempt at creating a supernatural allegory for the trauma of emotional abuse.

One gets the sense that the filmmakers are checking off genre tropes and tricks from a list instead of finding ways to invest them with fresh chills or shivers.

It's an emotional coup for both actors.

It aspires to be a mystery but can't wring any tension to fuel it.

Though much of this material is fairly stock, the cast helps elevate it with some unexpectedly committed and vibrant performances.
